LISTEN: Common’s Latest Drake Diss on “Stay Schemin (Remix)”

The war of the light skinneded sets off 2012 pitting Chi-town’s Common versus Canada’s own Drake.

Around the December release of Common’s album The Dreamer/ The Believer, rumors painted Drizzy as the designated target in Comm’s “Sweet,” who raps:

Y’all niggas man, you soft muthafuckers…Some ho ass niggas/ Singing all around me man, la la la, You ain’t muthafucking Frank Sinatra/ Uh, lil’ bitch

In an interview with Sway on MTV RapFix, Common addressed the “Sweet” situation head-on, saying if the record applied to Drake, then it’s about him.

“He opened his mouth and said some things, so if that’s what he want—all that subliminal [talk]…you could do that too, but say it now. The verse is about me but when you hear some of the stuff on the chorus it’s like you can’t help but think about dude and I guess that’s what he felt. So at the end of day he fits in that category, he already embraced it, so wear it.”

Last week, the Young Money mascot appeared on Rick Ross’ Rich Forever mixtape, dropping a couple of lines on “Stay Schemin” that sounded like a loaded response to the Chicago native:

That’s why I see no need to compete with niggas like y’all/ I just ask them when you see me you speak up nigga that’s all/ Don’t be ducking like you never wanted nothing/ Its feeling like rap changed, there was a time it was rugged/ Back when if a nigga reached it was for the weapon/ Nowadays niggas reach just to sell they record

But wait…

Only two days after, Common drops a Drizzy diss record remixing “Stay Schemin,” calling out the T-Dot youngin’ by name and adding a little Destiny’s Child to the mix. Shots fired!

Do you think the Common/Drake beef has “Ether” potential or is it two rap stars caught up in an irrelevant hype battle? Post your thoughts in the comments!

Pill: “I Never Signed Any Paperwork With Ross”; Tweets No Hard Feelings

Nothing like a good headscratcher to start the new year. Pill, a supposed artist under the Maybach Music Group umbrella, says he never even inked the deal with Rick Ross this whole time.

“I never signed any paperwork with Ross. It was just my deal was over at Warner already,” Pill told MTV News Tuesday.

Speculation began about his current deal (or no deal) situation when he expressed his discontent in a Twitter rant session on Dec. 28. “It’s not rocket science. Radio and TV b4 I had a deal, none after and u ask why Pill ain’t blew all the way up. Artist sign deals, label doesn’t do shit for them or don’t even know to work the artist. time wasted,” posted @Pill4180.

According to the Atlanta rapper, he was signed to Asylum/ Warner Bros. Records in 2009, a year before Ross brought MMG over to Warner Music Group. Around January 2010, Pill started receiving calls from Rozay which resulted in several Selfmade collaborations and an instant affiliation with MMG. (Read his shoutouts to the Maybach team in my November interview with Pill for VIBE.com here.)

While the rapper’s lawyers are attempting to dissolve his Warner contract, the “John Doe” emcee isn’t calling out either party, tweeting: “There are no shots at Rozay or Warner Bros. I’m just deciding to go my separate ways. Love to MMG for the opportunity.. Peace.”
